Batch is definitely iffy on processing files.

VRD 762a

I processed about 50 dvd.mpg files to X264.mp4s with Batch and about 20 failed.

As an experiment I kept rerunning the failed files with Batch.
Every run a few "failed" files would pass, most failed.

There were only 4 files that batch had failed to process after 7-8 runs.
I put each of the 4 files into the normal VRD interface and every one of them passed with no problem.

Thanks,

That's odd because batch just uses a hidden copy of VRD, via COM, to do the processing. So there is really no reason any specific file should fail in batch over the UI. Is it possible that your antivirus or some other process was attempting to scan the output file before it was finsihed? We've seen some issues with AV software interfering with output that seem to be more prevalent when running batch. (probably because of the constant calls to the COM interface to get output status)

Ok, that was W10/1709 and the 16core.
I'll have to check and see what it is doing.

Will turn off any protection that I find and do a rerun of the problem files. (I keep it off the internet).
Hope that will fix it. I like Batch!

Tested more on W10 and W7 16core BATCH...

Did at stock and overclocked, Windows defender on and off.
Batch fails more there then on my "stable 6 years 6core 3930" but it is new tech&build.

BUT even then it is much faster...
16core,W10 @ 3.9Ghz, around > 350fps, -CPU 70+% (16% fps faster then 16core W7)
16core, W7 -@ 3.9Ghz, around > 300fps, -CPU 50-60+%
06core W7 -@ 4.3Ghz, around > 200fps --Cpu 70-80%

The big thing for me with W10 is that batch does not stop and get a "stopped working" windows
dialogue that you must click for Batch to continue working like it does in W7. (plus the 16% faster).

One other odd thing on the 16 core...
VRD interface always seems to fails on the first use. Start it up again and NO more problems!

Right now it is just an encoding machine and I am on my 3930 6 core.

06core > 60 encodes only three failures. 5%(a recycle fixed them).
Never that good on the 16core > (20 fails out of 50)40%
Hope the 16core is not buggy.

Sadly Pass1 just needs pure speed.
06 cores or 16 cores, 4 to 5 core use is it for Pass1.
